Chris Green tweeted video claiming ‘far-left’ Labour ‘thugs’ were trying to break into a market hall – but his video showed otherwise and new footage reveals assault on 64yo Labour-supporting nurse by Johnson supporter. She has spoken out
On Saturday, Boris Johnson cancelled an appearance at a market hall in Bolton on Saturday, claiming police had cancelled his visit because of ‘security concerns’. It was one of a number of such cancellations in recent days as Johnson’s campaign of hiding from the public continues.
Johnson was supported in his claim by Bolton West Tory candidate Chris Green, who put out a ‘selfie-style’ video claiming that ‘far-left thugs working for Jeremy Corbyn’ were trying to ‘hammer down the door’ to the market hall to get at the peace-loving market traders inside.
The media immediately promoted both Johnson’s and Green’s claims.
But police were only called to the hall after Labour supporters complained that a 64-year-old nurse had been assaulted by Johnson’s supporters inside the hall – and shocking footage has emerged showing the assault, in which a man hauls her by her hair and lunges to kick out at her.
The nurse, Pat, has spoken to the SKWAWKBOX about the peaceful protest – and the aggression of Johnson’s supporters. That interview and the footage of the assault on Pat are shown below:
On Monday, the Tories also tried to claim a Tory aide had been ‘punched in the face’ by a Labour supporter – a claim similarly promoted as fact by the Establishment media. But video footage quickly proved the claim was a brazen lie.
Both Chris Green and Conservative HQ were contacted for comment about the misleading claims and the assault by their supporters. Neither responded.
Boris Johnson is a coward who is hiding from the public – and you can never trust a Tory, especially when they are looking to shift blame onto Labour.
